Compressed Bamboo Flooring Vs Engineered Compressed Bamboo Flooring
The Engineered compressed bamboo flooring is also known as Bamwood by another Bamboo Supplier in Perth. On the contrary to what some other flooring companies may say, we only sell the engineered board because it is the best or vice versa. We know these claims couldn`t be further from the truth.
So let me set you straight.....
Simply Bamboo is the only company in Perth who imports both boards.
Both boards are ideal for the Australian climate providing they have been manufactured to a quality standard and the moisture content has been tested accordingly to meet the environmental requirements of the country it is being exported too. Australia unlike the US or Europe for that matter has different moisture requirements compared to other parts of the world.
As we import both style of boards, being the engineered and solid compressed, both are tested to ensure they have acceptable levels of moisture being between 8 -10% before they are even imported to us in Australia.
The solid compressed board is exported worldwide and it is also very popular with countries like the US, Canada, parts of Europe and the UK.
The Engineered Compressed board is structurally a very strong board and is the strongest of the 2 options. The cross section layer is designed to keep the board flat and withstand moisture better. However if the subfloor is not treated with a barrier/primer and there is a issue with the moisture this board will eventually cup the same as the solid if exposed to high levels of moisture from the substrate.
